Ipsos' Top Cities 2013

Ipsos-Mori, a London based firm, surveyed people from five continents as to the world's greatest cities. NY, Paris, and London were voted the world's best. L.A. and D.C. were the only other US cities among the top 20.

I think that Charlotte needs to advertise internationally to raise its profile. What does NY have that we don't?

We have:

1. world class shopping in South Park and North Lake;
2. World class museums;
3. World class dining (e.g., Merts, 131 Main, and Firebirds); and
4. An international finance center.

Unlike NY, we have friendly people, awesome schools, and great weather. Many people in NY pay $40k/yr for private elementary and high school schools that probably aren't even as good as Hawk Ridge.

Perhaps if the Chamber of Commerce advertised Charlotte in Europe, Asia, and Latin America, we would get visitors from those places.

Also, NY is building scores of 50 stores+ towers right now that is fueled, in part, by foreigners' purchases of second homes. If Charlotte attracts those visitors and they see how awesome it is, we could suddenly have 30 fifty story+ towers under construction in Uptown, and our skyline would grow by a factor of 10.

What do y'all think?

By the way, I hope that y'all had a happy Rosh Hoshanah!

Ah, typical LondonLawer post, always entertaining. If he had actual clients, he'd have less time to attempt to show his breathtaking knowledge of cities around the world.

With the slew of incorrectness in your OP, the only thing I feel that I need to correct you on, is that people in NYC are actually very friendly. There is a difference between being polite and being friendly. People from NYC typically mind their own business. People of Charlotte and other southern areas, do not. Manners.

Oh, and we won't be a world class city until long after we are all dead.

Who cares. People who live here are happy because of the life they have, not because they can pat themselves on the back.

I'll venture "a guess" as to how many times this thread has been here: 3-4?
How many views in the past?: 1000?


Reading polls as to what cities are a " world city" is for people that have way too much time on their hands.
